Marbling a fireplace surround...

This week I painted the large columns and mantle surrounding this fireplace for a client.
Below is how the fireplace looked before I started...

It was important to compliment the client's tapestry hanging and not compete with it.  I chose to create a terracotta marble for the columns to pull those colors from the tapestry and a lighter marble for the upper and lower mantle.  A black marble effect was used on the bases and tops of the columns as an accent.
